Read up about the ideal conditions that your seeds require for best results. Ideally, the newly sprouted seeds should be left undisturbed ( except for watering ) until the new seedlings are ready to transplant – the bigger the seedling is when first transplanted, the less stressful the transition will be on the plant. Jiffy 7 Pellets are great for germination, and seedlings can be potted into 1.5lt or 5lt Thermoform Plant Pots, using a seedling mix, like Freedom Farms SeedStarter. Once repotted, water seedlings well, to allow the substrate to compact and settle onto the seedling’s root ball. Light feeding can the begin, using nutrients of your choice, given in concentrations that fall in line with the feeding requirements of the type of plant at its current size.
